Each week we update you regarding everything Savage Worlds, including news from Pinnacle, the licensees, and the community, as well as the Forum Top Five.
Apologizes to our loyal readers who follow our Savage Mondays. I had a 11 lb 5 oz “problem” by the name of Jack Hayes that came up around the end of November that’s had me rather distracted. Who has been rather demanding on our schedule.
I found this intriguing, I look over many Kickstarter projects and rarely find ones that I’m willing to shell out some cash for. This setting not only looked interesting but offered some great bonuses for chipping in. At the $25 you get a print copy of the book, a PDF, and at least two archtypes. If the project hits $8k then the first of four adventures will be released to the backers. Not a bad deal.
Streets of Bedlam: A Savage World of Crime + Corruption is equal parts neo-noir, pulp detective fiction, and a bit of the ol’ ultraviolence thrown into a cement mixer and poured on top a heap of nameless bodies no one will ever miss.
It’s a modern urban setting full of despicable people doing awful things in the name of God, money, politics, or to pay off old debts. The stories shine light on the dark places of the human heart but it’s about finding diamonds in the rough, about good people in bad situations. The heroes may have questionable means but they have good intentions.
Of course, you know what they say about good intentions.
What will surely become the most feared book in the high seas Pinnacle has released the Explorer’s Edition of 50 Fathoms. This has been our stable of settings to try for some time now, we keep eye balling it in a way one does when they have a stack of other games to try. As we’ve been cycling in more games and it is… On sale…
The world is drowning. The natives say three witches in Ograpog were sentenced to death by King Amemnus and drowned by the rising tide. With their dying breath, they cursed Caribdus to drown as they were, to drown in fifty fathoms of cold dark sea.
Crab-like scurillians, massive grael, lonely doreen, mysterious kraken, cruel kehana, and the nigh-human masaquani now sail the seas beside the new visitors—humans from the age of piracy, dashing corsairs, bloodthirsty bucaneers, and savage sea dogs drawn from earth. Many believe these visitors to be destined to defeat the Sea Hags and save Caribdus from a watery grave, but most seem interested only in the plunder of forgotten treasures in a drowning world.
Be the hero you were meant to be. Sail the seas. Buckle your swashes. Fight the good fight. Save the world. Come to Caribdus.
The bitter cold of winter is upon us. While Deadlands is not the best tool to keep us warm the trail guide will keep us from dying. This week Pinnacle releases the Weird White North treading into places close to home (for me). Will your players survive the long winter?
Trail Guide: Weird White North is your guide to terror in the tundra! With additional setting rules for the bitterest cold, a mini-Plot Point Campaign stretching back to the 1600s, a frozen boatload of Savage Tales, and the coldest, creepiest critters Canada can conjure, Weird White North has everything you need to take your Deadlands game farther north than ever before, well beyond where saner men would stop.
Discover what lies buried beneath the ice of ages in Alaska and British Columbia. Witness Canada’s fantastic Winterline hold the most frigid force of Mother Nature at bay. Become embroiled in a struggle as old as the cold itself.
So, how about it, hombre? You got what it takes to survive in a place where distances start at “vast” and temperatures top out at “deadly”? There’s only one way to find out-get your copy of Trail Guide: Weird White North today!
Having never experience a flood myself I can only assume the horrible tragedy of coming home to all of your worldly possessions being ruined and having to start all over again. Savage Mojo obviously feels the same as the helped put together this bundle to raise support for SCCAP’s relief effort. So help a charity and get loads of Savage Worlds stuff to boot.
Hurricane Irene Flood Relief is a charity bundle created in support of upstate New York victims of flooding from Hurricane Irene. All revenue generated by the sale of this bundle will be donated to the Schoharie County Community Action Program to help in their work.
